Resubmission about theopraxis from Maria James

Dear Moira,

I have found your comments and ideas about my work very useful and have adapted my work as requested.

I understand the need for clarity around some of the included concepts and have clarified points where you have found anomalies or vague statement. I trust I have done this to a sufficient extent.

I have included more data around my claims to knowledge but have increasingly realised that this is a work in progress and so look forward to a greater data bank as the work proceeds from which I might generate meaningful and significant evidence. This submission is very much in line with my best thinking so far and I live in the faith that both my thinking and work will both increase and improve with time.

I trust that you will find the work now suitable for publication and look forward to hearing from you.

With many thanks

Maria James

Dear Maria. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to review your paper and it's lovely to see that you have attended to all the academic points of rigour, justification, clarification and evidence. I enjoyed reading it again very much, particularly with all the new points. For all the above reasons I would have been happy to recommend your paper for publication.

However, I was very disappointed to see that you have not attended to the technical details as outlined in the Submission Guidelines and to which I carefully drew your attention. I wrote at the end of that section: I hope you will do the job of presenting your paper to the specified guidelines. Without it, I cannot recommend this paper for publication. It is therefore up to the Editorial Board as to whether they can accept your paper in its current condition.

You write with passion and insight, and I wish you and your work all the very best in the future. Your paper deals with some very important issues and I did enjoy reading it.

Warmest regards, Moira
